Sporting judge decides against suspension for Calabria after gesture to Inter fans

By Oliver Fisher -

It would be fair to say that there has been plenty of discussion about a gesture that AC Milan full-back Davide Calabria made during Saturday’s derby win over Inter.

Calabria raised his middle finger in a blatant manner, directed towards the Inter side of San Siro after the full-time whistle. It was claimed in the media that he could face a suspension as a result of the gesture.

However, it also became apparent that there could only be a potential sanction if the offence was seen by either the match officials or by the federal prosecutor present on the sidelines.

Since the gesture has only been spotted by the TV cameras, the Primavera product does not appear to be at risk, because TV footage can only be used against players in the case of violent acts.

Indeed, OneFootball report how the sporting judge decided not to sanction the 23-year-old at all and therefore he will be available to Stefano Pioli for the game on Monday 26th against Roma.
